It has been just over a week since my second treatment. I realized that I had jumped the gun when I declared that I was half way done just by simply having my treatment. That was the easy part. To FULLY be half way done, I still had to get through the side effects that came with that treatment. They came.
Actually, Thursday and Friday weren't too bad. I even went to Lagoon with my family and rode "Wicked". (Truthfully, during the whole ride I kept thinking, "What the HECK was I thinking???") Anyway, then starting Sunday, I got SOOOO TIRED! It really wasn't until yesterday (a week later) that I started to get my energy back. I didn't expect to be so tired for so long. It pretty much wiped me out along with all of the other little side effects that go with it.... achey, upset stomach, burning tongue and esophogus, plus a few that just don't need mentioned. UGH! We continue to be cared for by loving neighbors, friends and family. My beautiful Mother moved in for the week and took such good care of us. It was such a comfort to know that the kids' schedule just moved forward like normal. I think they need that. Thanks, Mom for all of your help, love and support. We couldn't have gotten through this week without you!
I just started reading the biography of Thomas S. Monson, "To the Rescue". There is a quote in there that really stuck out to me. It says, "I am daily impressed that the majority of the good people in the world do not receive any accolades or any publicity but live good lives within a small circle and one day will merit eternal reward." So many have included our family in their "small circle". I have been so touched by the generosity and love of so many and I pray that the Lord will bless each of you with his choicest blessings.
